(A Star)

Malala YousafzaiI don’t normally take much interest in the annual announcement of GCSE results… and don’t entirely understand the new grades they’ve invented since my own school days… but I feel compelled to sing the praises of girls’ education campaigner Malala Yousafzai, who has achieved an “A*” in six subjects (incl. Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Religious Studies) and an “A” in four subjects (History, Geography, English Lang. and English Lit.). So, hurrah for her, and the good folk at Edgbaston High School in Birmingham!

Note: I received a copy of her book (I Am Malala) as one of my b-day presents this year… so hopefully I’ll get around to reading that before she graduates from university!
